First time writing an essay since basically high school and I’ve just realised how much of a pretentious little cunt i am i mean check this shit out:
The second lecture that we listened to, entitled ‘Anthropologists, Guns and Material Culture’ by Victor Buchli, left me somewhat bemused and lost. Not because the lecture’s content was too complex or beyond my comprehension – in fact, I found what he was talking about to be quite interesting – but because of the way Buchli presented it. The majority of his lecture was peppered with intellectual jargon and obscure references, which left much of the audience confused and, eventually, somewhat disengaged.
The dictionary definition of ‘jargon’ varies: One is ‘The specialised or technical language of a trade, profession, or similar group,’ the other is ‘Nonsensical, incoherent, or meaningless talk.’ Indeed, by using words and references particular to the study of archaeology, Buchli rendered his lecture incoherent and nonsensical to his audience - 300-odd second-year students of graphic, product, and ceramic design and architecture. Whilst we are certainly far from uninformed, we simply do not possess the expertise in archaeology that Buchli seemed to assume that we did; as a result, many people felt disconnected from the lecture and were not able to appreciate it in full.
To convey an idea the way you intend to it is important to know your audience and how you can best convey your information to them. What do they know? What do they want to know? What will make them care? From this, you can construct the best way of conveying your information so that they specifically can understand it best. I feel that Buchli did not necessarily take these questions into consideration and, as a result, gave a lecture that was not well understood by those who listened to it. Buchli’s lecture could have been much more informative and engaging had he adjusted his vocabulary and the references he cited to suit us, his audience. Considering the rich content of the lecture I find myself rather disappointed that I and others were not able to understand it better.
at least I said ‘you’ and not ‘one’ at the beginning of the third paragraph but yeah there you go
